The Bold and the Beautiful continues to add more twists in the saga of Maya Avant (Karla Mosley), the trans woman who has married Rick Forrester (Jacob Young).

After coming back from their honeymoon, the duo known as “Raya” reveals they have discussed wanting a child of their own, and while adoption is one way to go about it, they want a baby that is theirs – part Forrester and part Avant.  Enter Maya’s sister, Nicole (Reign Edwards). On Friday’s episode of the CBS soap opera, Maya asks her sister of she would give her the greatest gift, and be the surrogate to carry their child.   Nicole is stunned … we fade to black.

On Monday, Maya and Nicole’s on-screen father, played by showstopper Obba Babatude’ (Julius) dishes on the latest plot twist with TV Insider.  Just what is conservative dad Julius going to think of this?  After all, he bascially was persona non gratis after his rantings at Maya and Rick’s wedding.   However, B&B is bringing both Babatunde’ and his on-screem wife Vivienne, played by Anna Maria Horsford back to the canvas, when it will be revealed on next week’s October 22nd that the Avants have relocated to Los Angeles.  Let the family tension begin!

When asked what will happen when Julius tries to wrap his head around this surrogate request Maya has laid on to her sister, Babatunde’ responded: “It’s like Jaws. Just when Julius thought it was safe to go back in the water… boom! This is an overwhelming development. The poor guy is, like, ‘Whoa. Wait a minute. You want my little girl to do whaaaat?’ How Julius and Vivienne deal with this is going to be very interesting. And it sure confirms his worst fears about his girls living with these Forresters. ‘See, this is what I was talking about!’ This really helps his argument.”

So, what do you think of this surrogate storyline?  Should Maya have asked her sister?  Are you glad to hear veteran actor Obba’ Babatunde’ and Anna Maria Horsford are back on the canvas?  Watch the moment where Maya and Rick ask Nicole below.

This is a “soap opera” story line – not one rooted in reality. Sometimes those work, if the actors commit and pull it off. Often they do not. In either case, they rarely interest me.

I am just glad to see there really are other people in Los Angeles other than the Forresters and Logans!

Well, it will be the only story that will play out over the next few days. B&B writers can only write one story at a time it seems.

I think I am going to like this story—the idea of bringing in Maya’s parents into the mix is fantastic idea because I love seeing the 2 actors on screen.

I think they should chill and just enjoy being married.

Then asking Nicole to be the surrogate–they also want her to be the egg donor, to have a child with Rick and give that child up. It’s a lot to ask. The emotional and the physical toll on Nicole.

It’ll be interesting to see what will happen.

And Rick obviously hadn’t investigated adoption thinking they could have a child in two months–well, maybe with his money they could.

Maya’s parents have good intentions. I love her Mom. Her dad is controlling but he means well. But Maya I can’t stand!!! She is very fake and her voice is so annoying and phony!!!!! She is selfish and manipulative. Somehow that part of her personality has been forgotten. I remember all the game playing she did before. I don’t like where this story is going. I miss the good old days. I’m back to recording so I can fast forward and only watch the parts of interest—without Maya. What is most interesting is what will happen when Thomas discovers Caroline… Read more »

Stars React to Alec Baldwin Fatally Shooting Cinematographer Halyna Hutchins & Injuring Director, Joel Souza, In Prop Gun Mishap On Set of ‘Rust’

UPDATED: Over the last 24 hours, the entertainment world has been stunned, by the horrific incident that took place on the set of the western drama Rust, while it was shooting scenes in New Mexico.

What is known is that Alec Baldwin (Ex-The Doctors, Knots Landing) discharged a prop gun that killed Director of Photography, Halyna Hutchins and injured director, Joel Souza.  The film also stars Frances Fisher (Ex-Edge of Night) and Jensen Ackles (Ex-Days of our Lives). Baldwin is also a producer on the film.

According to Variety, the prop gun contained a “live single round,” according to an email sent by IATSE Local 44 to its membership.

On Friday, Alec Baldwin made a statement via Twitter on his Hilaria and Alec Baldwin Foundation Twitter feed, expressing: “There are no words to convey my shock and sadness regarding the tragic accident that took the life of Halyna Hutchins, a wife, mother and deeply admired colleague of ours. I’m fully cooperating with the police investigation to address how this tragedy occurred and am in touch with her husband, offering my support to him and his family. My heart is broken for her husband, their son, and all who knew and loved Halyna.”

Yesterday, The Sante Fe Sheriff’s Departments originally shared that “Hutchins, 42, and Souza, 48 were shot when a prop firearm was discharged by Alec Baldwin.  Ms. Hutchins was transported, via helicopter, to University of New Mexico Hospital where she was pronounced dead by medical personnel. Mr. Souza was transported by ambulance to Christus St. Vincent Regional Medical center where he was undergoing treatment for his injuries. This investigation remains open and active. No charges have been filed in regard to this incident. Witnesses continue to be interviewed by detectives.”

This morning, Frances Fisher revealed in a twitter conversation with Patricia Arquette, that director Joel Souza had been released from the hospital.  Meanwhile, photographs of a distraught Baldwin emerged following the shooting.

The news of the Baldwin prop gun incident, isn’t the first time something like this has happened. Jon-Erik Hexum was killed on October 18, 1984, on the set of the TV show Cover Up when he accidentally shot himself in the head with a gun loaded with blanks. Then, in 1993, Brandon Lee, the son of martial arts legend Bruce Lee, died from a prop gun accident on the set of The Crow by a cast member.

As the news made its way through the entertainment community and mainstream news, several soap stars shared their reactions to the fatal shooting accident.

General Hospital’s Jon Lindstrom (Kevin/Ryan) expressed: “Feeling so sad for everyone involved in the tragedy on the #RustMovie set. I do know the film was staffed with experienced, thoughtful professionals. Please, let’s wait until we have the facts. Nothing positive will come from passing judgement or casting aspersions before then.”

General Hospital and Dynasty’s Emma Samms (Holly, Fallon) shared on her friend Jon-Erik Hexum’s death: This AWFUL tragedy on #Rust is unfathomable to me. If all on-set protocols were being adhered to, how, on earth, could it have happened? After what happened to Brandon Lee and my dear friend Jon-Erik Hexam, the firearm protocols became incredibly strict. I was told (when I was with him at the hospital afterwards) that Jon-Erik had been working with a completely empty gun all morning. A blank (still very dangerous) was loaded and then immediately there was a delay. Exhausted, he was allowed to fall asleep – loaded gun in hand. hey woke him, but there was immediately another delay. Jon-Erik put the gun to his head, forgetting it now contained a blank, (because he had just woken up) and jokingly pulled the trigger. He was not the kind of person to play around with a loaded gun. #fortherecord”

We will continue to post reactions and update this story.
